North Carolina's smallest community colleges sometimes have BIG challenges in assisting folks in remote locations. That's why Tri County Community College has a main campus in Murphy as well as centers in Graham and Cherokee Counties. Reaching out to those communities is one thing. Bringing them all together is another. Rick Sullivan visits North Carolina's far west to see how it's done.

Brunswick Community College is a full service institution serving one of the prettiest stretches of land, and water, in North Carolina. Rick Sullivan takes us to the southeast corner of the state where this school is making a positive impact on the community it serves, thanks in large part to a very devoted group of philanthropists.

As we mark the 50th anniversary of the NC Community College system, we feature one of the biggest "little" schools in the state. It's nowhere near the biggest in enrollment, but when it comes to the size of the territory represented, Rick Sullivan says the College of the Albemarle is unrivaled!

Community colleges serve a lot of people in a lot of ways. Vance-Granville Community College is a pretty good example, with a service area that runs from the northern suburbs of Research Triangle Park all the way to the Virginia line. To be successful VGCC has learned to connect with its community & strengthen its ties to local industry. Rick Sullivan takes a look at the forward-looking school.

Over the past 50 years community colleges in NC have proven to be solid performers when it comes to jumpstarting students into 4 year colleges. They've also trained thousands of people for the workforce & sometimes even connected them directly to jobs & promotions that would not have otherwise been available to them. Craven is one community college that does not always fit into a traditional mold.

For 50 years the NC community college system has been helping communities to help themselves. Sometimes that help can be pretty straightforward. Traditional programs that connect students to 4 year schools or gainful employment are available at all 58 schools. At Lenoir Community College, even some of the traditional programs are being enhanced by some not so traditional thinking & technology.

Students of NC's Community College System sometimes choose their schools for a variety of reasons. It might be location, or a specific program, or to save money. Back in 2004, THE PRESIDENT of Southeastern Community College, Dr. Kathy Matlock, made HER choice to return to The System. She made a move to her present college for just about every reason she could factor.

Bladen Community College, headquartered in Dublin, serves about 1800 students a year in a county that spans about 900 square miles. With a rural population that spread out, it takes some creativity to help them achieve their goals. But that's a mission BCC's staff and faculty takes very seriously.

Our tour of the North Carolina Community College System, and its 58 colleges, makes a stop at Mayland Community College. If you're scratching your head to figure out where Mayland might be located, don't search the map for a Mayland County. You won't find one, and Rick Sullivan says this school takes its mission to serve THREE counties, very seriously.
